Carpe Diem, at last

Pity Carpe Diem String Quartet. The Ohio Wesleyan University quartet-in-residence was going to play two venues in Seattle last November, but then there was that whole snow thing. Barely three months later, Carpe Diem cellist Kristin Ostling, on her way to a music conference, was detained at Heathrow Airport in England for eight hours and then sent back to the U.S. — officials said her planned non-compensated performance at a music conference was a visa violation — while the other members of Carpe Diem were allowed through.

The resilient quartet returns to Seattle for the UW World Series, at 8 p.m. today at Meany Hall.
